Wheel of Time - crazysam23 - 04-10-2013

Short series description:
The Wheel of Time is a series of epic fantasy novels written by American author James Oliver Rigney, Jr., under the pen name Robert Jordan. Originally planned as a six-book series, The Wheel of Time now spans fourteen volumes, in addition to a prequel novel and a companion book. Jordan began writing the first volume, The Eye of the World, in 1984 and it was published in January 1990.
The author died in 2007 while working on what was planned to be the final volume in the series, although he had prepared extensive notes so another author could complete the book according to his wishes. Fellow fantasy author and long-time Wheel of Time fan Brandon Sanderson was brought in to complete the final book, but during the writing process it was decided that the book would be far too large to be published in one volume, and would instead be published as three volumes: The Gathering Storm (2009), Towers of Midnight (2010) and A Memory of Light (released on 8 January 2013).

So, anyone else a fan of this series? It's VERY well-written and quite complex. The 14th and last book just came out fairly recently.

Never read them, sounds like it would be my kind of book though.

I would also like to thank you for making me realize there was a books section of this sub forum, haha.

Haha. You're welcome. If you've ever read any fantasy and enjoyed it though, check out the Wheel of Time series.
